    Bought some U bolts now wonder if they will be long enough with the six leaf spring's. Any thoughts. Don't have time right now to check it out toooooo busy getting body ready to paint. If any one dose a resto. Make sure you remove all the Epoxy coating form the sheet metal. I suggest to sand blast it all and them prime it your self. I have found rust under the coating and it came out on the rear quarters. Looked like the paint was rejected. Started to wrinkle or spider web. So food for thought. :kartman: Now for a cold one!!!!!!
